Bluechilli partner with Deloitte’s Entrepreneur Connect

BlueChilli today welcomed the launch of the Entrepreneur Connect program an all in one compliance, business coaching and connectivity initiative designed for lean operating start-ups to help BlueChilli investee start-ups manage and accelerate growth.

Under the agreement Deloitte Private will offer its Entrepreneur ConnectTM Program to BlueChilli investee start-ups which will leverage the Deloitte Private infrastructure and community.  Start-ups will have all their bookkeeping and accounting services looked after by Deloitte Private, enabling the start-ups’ founders to focus on business growth and scale.  Deloitte Private will leverage its extensive network and client base of high net worth individuals, Deloitte partners and subject matter specialists to assist BlueChilli companies.

Entrepreneur ConnectTM has been developed with BlueChilli within a cost effective fee structure designed for lean operating start-ups that ties in to the milestone business growth approach developed by Blue Chilli.

“Ensuring  our start-ups are receiving best of breed advice and support through strategic alliances such as this one with the fantastic team at Deloitte Private is key to the overall BlueChilli strategy supporting our 100 startups by 2016 goal.” Says Catherine Eibner, Lead Startup Advisor at BlueChilli, “We spent a lot of time working with Deloitte private to ensure this offer was exactly what our start-ups needed to achieve the important and challenging milestones we set for them around development, growth and scale. It was also critical that the program adapted accordingly as the start-ups transitioned through the different stages. We are really happy with the resulting offer as are our founders, each eager to kick things off this week.”

Deloitte Private partner Josh Tanchel said, “By joining forces with BlueChilli, we have been able to develop an innovative gateway to Deloitte Private’s accounting, tax and business advisory services. The business coaching support is particularly valuable, allowing start-up and early growth companies to access support and advice that goes beyond their statutory obligations. They will now have access to a wealth of experience and knowledge from across Deloitte Private’s business advisors. We’re also looking forward to listening to the members of BlueChilli’s start-up community to find out how else we can adapt our services and approach to better support their growth.”

This folks is one hell of a strategic partnership.
